"I chose to live and raise my son here because the community is safe, relatively quiet, has room to grow, and has many of the little things that make for a great community while not being too far from the big city.  Caledonia has the opportunity to move into the next 50 years with motivation that few others in Wisconsin have.  We have the space, the people and the vision to become a leader in the area for education, residential growth and commercial responsibility."
